The aggressive radiotherapy and chemotherapy used for treatment of oncological patients - through the damage of germ cells - may cause decrease of fertility or complete infertility. There are relatively few effective clinical options for preserving female fertility. The results of clinical experiments connected with ovarian tissue crypreservation and oocyte freezing are very promising and indicate that we may have tools for female fertility preservation in the future. In this paper, 1) the future role of oocyte cryopreservation in fertility preservation of female oncological patients, and 2) the authors' preliminary results with oocyte cryopreservation are summarized.
